, and it should likely be a death penalty case under federal law. i believe that the federal confidence in doing this at this time is extraordinary. >> cenk: all right, beth what are your thoughts here? any reason to call him an enemy combatant, are you in favor or opposed to it. >> well, it's not my opinion it's the law. he's not an enemy combatant. he's captureed on american soil. it has to be shown that he was in control or in concert with an foreign enemy. in this case it didn't meet that standard, so the law took care of itself. >> cenk: that's true. they called jose pedea made up how he was a dirty bomber and then later when they were forced to go to trial they said, yeah, well, turns out he wasn't a dirty bomber, but he was doing other things not related to us, but still terror, and he's in jail now but isn't that the problem, kevin, when you trust people to the government to just label the people enemy combatant correctly, that's not again the american system. >> in that case he was actually in a military prison and was actually transferred to a miami federal prison. you're right jay car
with this legislation. we are a safer country when law- enforcement knows who is here, has their fingerprints, photos, conduct background checks, and no wonder these to look at needles through haystacks. both the refugee program and asylum program have been significantly strengthened in the past five years, such that we are much more careful about screening people in determining who should or should not be coming into the country. if there are any changes that our homeland security experts tell us we need to be made -- s, security experts tell us need to be made -- a there were widespread erroneous reports of arrests being made. this emphasizes how important it is to let the facts come out before jumping to any conclusions. mostieve this is the balanced piece of immigration legislation that has been ever produced. the american people and all of our colleagues should read this bill over the next few weeks. they will have ample time to look at every page and every paragraph before we go to markup in the committee. what they will find is a bill the secures our borders, combats the overstay, cracks down

[laughter] i will be brief to have time for discussion and therefore i just want to say we all remember the crisis that started in the united states in 2008 and in 2008 we all agreed it will never happen again. we have to learn our lessons. the summit to london and pittsburgh and a two the g20 meeting today in boston. we have made a lot of progress in doing this since then. we agreed that the reason -- there are three reasons. too much -- too much liquidity in the financial markets and too few regu
for intelligence, not law enforcement purposes. this is highly controversial and could affect the government's case. but at some point in that interrogation which only lasted a few hours, which apparently consisted of him writing answers because he can't speak due to the injury to his throat. at some point in that interrogation, agents, professional interrogators decided we're not going to get anywhere or we've already learned everything we can learn from him. they also have on their shoulder, breathing down their neck, so to speak, a federal rule of procedure which requires he be charged with something within 48 hours. otherwise they have to let him go. they did charge him with this complaint filed by an f.b.i. agent who basically wrote a ten-page affidavit summarizing the evidence that they have against him. this f.b.i. agent personally viewed the tapes, looked at the evidence, -- >>gretchen: basically he's charged with having a weapon of mass destruction and killing people. but there was so much controversy in the last couple of days about whether or not he should be an enemy combatant. senator
